It’s one of the thinnest cases on the market. It doesn’t scream at you to remind you it’s there – it just is there, without adding weight or thickness.
The process of putting the case on can hardly be called an “installation”. There are two pieces. Snap on the back. Snap on the front. And you’re done. All the ports are accessible while the case is on.
The only minor annoyance I’ve encountered is when I pick up the computer on the corner with just one hand. The MacBook Air is very light so I tend to just pick it up and carry it around like this. If you grab it just the right way, the edge of the case can pop slightly off. But this is only a minor thing – I’ve never felt like the whole case was going to come off in my hand.
I highly recommend this case! It retails for $55.
